2018 Pinot Noir
Well balanced and pleasantly approachable; a distinct reflection of the terroir. Our 2018 Pinot Noir presents with the versatility and profound character we come to expect from this prized and beloved varietal.
Pale ruby red; spicy and fruity on the nose, intriguing with notes of undergrowth, leather and plum; medium bodied and tannic with a persistent, spicy and fruity aftertaste.
We have a special affinity for Pinot Noir at Vieni Estates; our first vintage in 2012 immediately spoke to the quality of wines we would be able to produce with this very special varietal. Rightfully regarded as a star of the Niagara Region, we're always excited as we anticipate the result of each growing season and vintage. The expressions of this varietal have an incredible variance across the new world and of course, we produce a cool-climate Pinot Noir and, as such, we can more closely be conflated with old world Pinot Noirs; we enjoy and value this distinction. To grow to love Pinot Noir is to grasp and appreciate the depth of the art of wine making and its relationship with nature.
